I found out I have C diff. I've  had all the symptoms for weeks now. I was tested and it came back positive. I have one day left on antibiotic, but not seeing any improvement in symptoms. Can anyone tell me if they have been through this and how long i

It hurts when I drink or eat anything. I'm over 2 months out the pain is getting worst. It started about 3wks ago, but only with food, but now I'm hurting when drinking protein shakes as well. I had an UGI yesterday and it was normal. It feels like eve

Has anyone taken this drug and if so did it help? I was put on this med yesterday and was hoping it will help with the burning in my stomach. I know it's to treat ulcers. I'm not sure if I have one, but the burning is pretty bad to the point I don't wh

I'm 3 1/2 weeks out and started having burning in my chest last night and it has gotten worse today. Im on a PPI for acid reflux. I'm still on the full liquid phase of the post op diet. I was told by surgeon just to take Tums or Maalox. My question is

Feeling down. Only a week and a half out and already at a stall. I haven't lost anything in over a week. Is this normal this soon out from surgery? I'm down 10 pounds from surgery weight which I'm so happy for, but didn't expect a stall this soon out.

I was having a hard time getting my liquids in until I discovered sugar free peach mango tea. Plain water just wasn't cutting it. I've tried other brands of sugar free drinks, but I didn't care for them. So glad I found one that agrees with me. It's cr

Trying to get down protein drink been working on it a couple hours. I'm scared I'll hurt my new pouch because I can't tell if I'm full or not and I'm scared I might over do it. Is there a certain amount you might drink and stop at that point or continu

Had surgery on Monday and come home today.... I had a para esophageal hernia repair and VSG. I'm having minimal pain right now. Just scared now that I'm home something might go wrong. has anyone else gone through this?

Had surgery Monday 11/7/16.  Went in with knowing I would have para esophageal hernia repair with the possibility of having either the VSG or RNY if the doctor didn't have to use mesh. Was told if he had to use mesh that he wouldn't do the wls at the s

This could postpone or end my journey. Went to see my surgeon yesterday for results of my UGI, and was floored by the results. I have a large paraesophageal hernia which may or may not need mesh to repair. I'm schedule to have surgery to repair it on 1

Hello OH Friends,

I'm looking for advice. I started this journey in February of this year with plans on having the VSG, but with recent test results from a UGI it looks like the VSG is no longer an option, and I'm going to have to have the RNY

I have to see a Hematologist before I have surgery on 9/26/16. Can anyone tell me what to expect during this visit. Thanks


lorylight posted a discussion topic 3 years, 1 month ago

Has anyone had acid reflux that had gotten better or resolved after having VSG? My doctor recommends me having the RNY, but the wls scares me to death. I've research different wls and the only one I'm not afraid of having is the VSG.

I need help in finding a great wls surgeon that doesn't require you to have a IVC filter implanted before vsg surgery. I know the dangers of blood clots are a very big concern, but I also know there are ot

Just found out I've been approve for my VSG YAH!Seems like it took forever for doc's office to summit paper work for approval 2wks. In fact, but was approved same day it was summited. So stoked

Found out today that my paperwork wasn't summited for approval yet. Mega upset❗ It was supposed to be summited last week but wasn't, and now I'm being told maybe tomorrow. It's hard enough waiting to see if I'

I've turned in all paperwork to be submitted to insurance yesterday. I'm just concerned I might be turn down. I've seen posting where others have been turned down on here and was wondering if any had BCBS

Hi VSG Friends:

I'm new to this site and hoping to find out if anyone had to have an IVC filter put in before having VSG surgery? My surgeon is
